Wayne Rooney believes that Roy Hodgson should continue as England's manager following the team's exit from the World Cup.

Wayne Rooney has backed Roy Hodgson to continue as England's manager.

Hodgson's position has come under scrutiny since the Three Lions were officially knocked out of the World Cup on Friday.

However, Rooney believes that the 66-year-old is the right man to take the team forward ahead of the European Championships in 2016.

"Roy has brought in an enthusiasm to the squad and introduced youngsters," he said. "Make no mistake - he is the man to take us forward."

Hodgson was appointed England manager in May 2012 following the resignation of Fabio Capello.
